Chris Impellitteri: sea of tranquility interview


Chris Impellitteri :
"Thank you !! Obviously I love to shred and play metal, but I understand the importance of creating a great song too…I usually start by writing a riff that is catchy, melodic, and memorable. For example, listen to "Crazy Train", or "Ain't Talking 'Bout Love" by Van Halen. Those two riffs are easily remembered and inspirational, all the way, right? I try to create similar patterns in order to please the listener and inspire them. My favourite tracks on the record are "Wicked Maiden", "Last Of A Dying Breed", "Garden Of Eden", and "Hi School Revolution". I am a metal kid at heart…, so my passion is with the heavy, more aggressive tunes."
